Hot stuff glassblowing alumni experience: spring edition, April 6 & 7
It’s back by popular demand! Join Alumni Relations and the School of Art glass program for our “hot stuff”, hands-on glass workshop. Get an exclusive look at glass-blowing, learn about the historical Glass House (established in 1970), and make your own perfect piece for spring.
Each attendee will work with advanced students from the program to create a unique, one-of-a-kind, colored glass flower. Pieces created by Illinois State students will also be available for purchase.
